why isn't harold green on there?
he was a big all-purpose back that played in the late 80s early 90s
here are some pro stats from wikipedia:

Career Receiving Stats

and from uscsports.com about his college career:


Green carried the football 702 times during his Carolina career for 3,005 yards, a four-year average of 4.3 yards per rush. His 3,005 yards ranks third on Carolina's all time career list behind Rogers, 1977-80, and Brandon Bennett, 1991-94.
Harold also caught 94 passes for 859 yards. The 94 receptions are 10th on Carolina's all time list. His best receiving day was seven receptions against Louisiana State in 1987 and his longest catch was 56 yards from quarterback Todd Ellis against Nebraska in 1986.
Green rushed for more than 100 yards 10 times during his Carolina career with his best being 172 yards against Wake Forest in 1987. He also had triple digit rushing games against Duke, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Virginia Tech, N. C. State, Miami (Fla.), Clemson and twice against Western Carolina. He topped the 1,000-yard mark in 1987 with 1,022 and ended his collegiate career with 989 yards in 1989. His rushing total as a freshman was 388 yards and he had 606 yards in 1988.

Pritchett only had 1000 yards rushing and 1000 yards receiving in his entire career. Of course, he was a FB... but so was Big George!

Bennett isn't even close to Harold Green. If Green had played in the same time period instead of George, he would have won the Heisman. If you never had the chance to see him you really missed someone special.Harold could run inside or outside. A great talent.

Voted for Duce, I think Derrick "Squeaky" Watson woulda been up there if he hadn't been... ("smokin' dat good") You should put Brewer on it too.. some younger fans might give him some votes.

I believe that Wadiak would be the measuring stick if he had not been killed.My dad saw him play and Wadiak was on his way to being a legend.But,I also agree that Harold Green was an awesome player.I was at the game vs Nebraska in 86 or 87, and he caught a screen pass from Ellis, the run after catch was poetry in motion.
